The University and Career Counselor advises and guides students and parents about the university admissions and financial aid process for admission to colleges and universities around the world. Students begin exploring their strengths and interests in grade nine and ten. In grades eleven and twelve the focus shifts to learning about colleges and universities and all aspects of the admissions process.
These are key years in the college planning process because you’ll be exploring and researching college options, creating and narrowing down a college list, taking standardized tests, and learning about financial aid and scholarships.
